The Historical Records of Australia Series III, published in 1921, covers despatches and papers relating to the settlement of the states. Volume 1 looks in particular at Port Phillip, Victoria 1803-1804 and Tasmania 1803 to June 1812.

The papers included look at the abortive attempt at settlement at Port Phillip 1803-1804, journals and logs of vessels employed in the settlement of Tasmania (the Lady Nelson, Ocean and Lady Barlow), the settlement at Risdon Cove 1803-1804, the settlement of southern Tasmania 1803-1812 and the settlement of northern Tasmania 1803-1812.

The reproduction of the actual material gives an invaluable insight into the lives, frustrations, triumphs and failures of the settlers and settlements. A comprehensive index allows easy access to individual events.

SAMPLE ENTRY:

LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR COLLINS TO UNDER SECRETARY SULLIVAN.
(Despatch per brig Lady Nelson and H.M.S. Calcutta.)
Head-Quarters Camp, Sullivan Cove,
Derwent River, 4th March, 1804.

Sir,
I am concerned to acquaint you that many of the articles sent out for the Settlement intended to be formed in Bass’s Straits have  been constructed of very bad Materials. I have the following Observations to make on them:-
The Axes in general are so soft that the commonest Wood will turn their Edges.
Of the Gimblets, scarce one in a dozen will stand boring twice.
The Iron is mostly rolled, not wrought, as it ought to have been.
The Materials for making and mending the Convicts' Cloathing are both very bad. The thread is nearly all rotten, and none of the Twist mentioned in the Invoice appears to have been sent out.
The Ordnance has been put on board incomplete, and of the four Iron Guns, two of them are twelve-, and the other two Six-Pounders, and these are, moreover, odd Guns.
Of the Triangle, which was sent to weigh them, one of the Legs was found entirely rotten ...
